Geneticists have always been aware that, when looking for signal across the entire genome, one has to be very careful to avoid false discoveries. Contemporary studies often involve a very large number of traits, increasing the challenges of “looking every-where”. I will discuss novel approaches that allow an adaptive exploration of the data, while guaranteeing reproducible results.
